Overview

As a beloved fan favorite and legend of the Boston Red Sox, Bobby Doerr cards and autographed memorabilia remain popular today. Doerr played his entire 14-year career with the Red Sox where he was an All-Star nine times.

What constitutes a Bobby Doerr rookie card has always been a subject of debate. His first card issued during his playing days is from 1936-37 Goudey Wide Pens. Initially, his name misspelled and so it was reissued. He also has two cards in the 1938 Goudey Heads-Up set. Another popular early card of Doerr is his 1939 Play Ball issue.

Doerr's first autographed card is in 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game. It features an on-card autograph. The card is not serial numbered and an exact print run has never been released.

His first memorabilia cards were also produced in 2001.  His 2001 SP Legendary Cuts card contains pieces of a Doerr game-used bat. His card from 2001 Topps Tribute contains swatches of game-worn jersey material.

Bobby Doerr's autographed memorabilia remains quite collectible. Demand for his signature is fueled by new generations joining the Red Sox Nation and learning about the team's heritage and history. Signed baseballs and photographs are the most commonly found items.
